Arts in the Heart of Augusta
Friday September 14 - Sunday September 16, 2012
Each year the Arts in the Heart Festival showcases visual and performing arts and celebrates the ethnic groups who blend to create the heart of our city. Shop for local arts and crafts, sample food from around the world, see live performances and much more!
This year’s featured country will be Germany. In addition to offering traditional German fare from regions such as Bavaria and the Black Forest, they will also have a beverage tent selling many types of German beers.
Festivities will take place on Broad Street between 8th and 10th Streets, which will be closed to traffic during the festival. The Global Food Village and Global stage will be in the Augusta Commons with ethnic food from 35 countries provided by local cultural groups. Over 90 Fine Arts and Crafts booths will extend down Broad Street with plenty of shade to make the festival an enjoyable experience for attendees.
All stages, the Global, Community, Family and Troubadour Stages will return, as well as the FREE children’s area, where kids can create crafts from around the world, and the Young Artist Market. The popular southern beer garden will be open all three days as well.
